In the town of Punta Lara, Buenos Aires district of Ensenada, a boy of 7 years died after being hit by a bus. A group of people wanted to lynch the driver but was quickly aided by the police.
The accident occurred yesterday at approximately 2 pm on Almirante Brown avenue at the height of the Parish Stella Maris. The child was hit by a bus of the line 275 and died instantly.
The kid was with his two brothers aged 9 and 10 and his parents, who had gone to spend the day near the banks of the camping “Islas Malvinas”.
The driver was beaten by a group of people and then was rescued by police from the police station of Punta Lara.
At this point, prosecutors Maria Scarpino and Carlos Vercellone are leading the case, judging the driver for “wrongful death”.
